Needs some help. Comments and suggestions would be great. +1 if you like.
early game any 3/3 is good. Its all well and good for destroying a big bady and replacing it with a frog, but it isnt going to slow anyone down. And if you use Rapid Hybridization on any of your own creatures with undying, such as Young Wolf , You get the 3/3 frog and then you get your Young Wolf back as a 2/2
I know you'll make whatever decision you want, but I'm going to type this out to help myself think about it as well.... or. Wait. Are we arguing over whether to use Ultimate Price vs. Rapid Hybridization ?
I see you have both in your list, and with that i am happy. But if you were going to run one or the other, i would choose Rapid Hybridization
I feel like this deck is a little unstable. You have lots of 2ofs in the mainboard, it would greatly improve consistency to drop some for more 4ofs. For example, why is Typhoid Rats in here? Wouldn't he be more useful as 2 more Cloudfin Raptor ?
Oh, and I have to ask, why Gyre Sage ? All that mana would help for is Primordial Hydra and Syncopate (the latter being overkill). You curve out at about 4, so being able to tap her for GGGG would have limited impact compared to more powerful creatures. Not to mention you can't even get her rolling until the turn after you play her most of the time.
Its good for combat tricks too.
Lets say you attacked with a creature with 3 +1/+1 counters. All you have left is a wimpy blocker, so they swing back at you. You can shift the counters on to your wimpy blocker, and block to kill their attacker.
Then you can move them back, or just attack with your not-so-wimpy-anymore guy.
